transparent girl

Sitting with knees bent
under a harsh light
her hand looks distorted
through the glass of water she is holding
the only annoying proof 
that yes, she really is there
and yes, she really does exist
transparent girl
feet cold on table bars
under the harsh light
her hair pulled too tightly back
she tastes a salty flavor in her mouth
irritating as it is, 
she feels,
and is aware, 
and breathes reluctantly on her own
